Lifelong Ohio State fan. Born and raised on the Ohio River on my grandpappy's farm where I learned two important life lessons: 1, Always treat people how you'd want to be treated, even the people who mistreat you. 2, Three yards and a cloud of dust! One of my earliest memories as a child is wearing my scarlet and gray footie pajamas while watching OSU game replays on the local WOSU channel with my dad. I even remember Paul Warfield announcing. I grew up in southern Ohio and have lived all over the state including Chillicothe and Cleveland. I've been known to scream at the TV when Ohio State plays. I go all in every game hence why my screen name is IN ALL CAPS. When Ohio State loses I am sick to my stomach for several days afterward. When they win it's like freaking Christmas. I hate Michigan. I hate them more than Khan hated Captain Kirk. Michigan sucks. I also hate the SEC (especially effing Gator fans). Go Bucks!


  • SPORTS MOMENT: My best personal sports moment was my 1 tackle in high school in the 1989 OHSAA Division IV state championship game at Ohio Stadium on the old field turf. To play an actual game on the same turf Woody walked on will always be the greatest sports moment of my life. That and OSU's 2002 national championship game win over Miami. I cried tears of utter joy after that win.

Considering how offbase and silly the assessment is I'd say it was Franklin and his butthurt talking. Maybe Tuberville but his experience against OSU was back before OSU had really started to gel. OSU was starting to pick up the pace when they played PSU.

Harbaugh to Jameis: "You have any eligibility left? Wait, scratch that, nevermind."

Comment 26 Feb 2015

I didn't realize what was going on with that Sugar Bowl kickoff return until after the play was over but yeah, the whole complexion of the beginning of that game would've been different. Of course who's to say that OSU scoring a TD right there leads to an OSU win?

As for the media bias, of course sports writers and bloggers write incendiary stuff. It's how they get mouse clicks and page views. They no longer care about what's right and what's wrong. In this case they no longer care that they're being unfair to the person they're writing about.

I have family in Nashville and Lavergne, TN and when I visit them all I see is that Vols orange. I wore my OSU hat into a local Applebees and got several dirty looks like I had just urinated on them. That was before OSU won the national title. I cant wait to go back up there decked out in S&G and see what I else I get.

Comment 26 Feb 2015

The problem wasn't that the Captain refused or didn't know how to sail through fog, it was the Coast Guard locking down the port. Not even civilian and commercial boats and ships were allowed in. Tampa's port channel is not easy to navigate and they didn't want the cruise turning into another Costa Concordia like in Italy.

Comment 25 Feb 2015

I guess what I find more amazing is the timing of it. Any lesser performance in victory we probably miss the playoffs. It was the perfect storm of talent hitting their stride, Cardale becoming the man in 1 week of practice, the tragedy with Kosta, the slights in the polls and the Vegas line and the fact that everyone was just tired of getting crapped on all season for the VT loss. I hope we see another performance like that someday but I wont hold my breath. It doesn't happen often obviously.

The only thing more satisfying than beating UF would be beating both UF and FSU. Losing to OSU with Urban Meyer would cause the fans here in Florida to implode upon themselves like dying stars. It would be glorious.

Comment 25 Feb 2015

Two of the 3 of BYU, UC and Boise will be picked up by a Power 5 conference. They're the only viable candidates unless the BigXII were able to flip someone already in a Power 5 (which wont happen because they've been hemorrhaging schools for the last 5 years themselves). However, if Tom Herman and Chad Morris were to elevate the talent levels (and program facilities) of both Houston and SMU they could become long-term candidates to move to a Power 5. That's IF neither Herman or Morris bolt for higher-profile jobs after a few years.

Harbaugh is too high strung to be the second coming of the Warlock. I can see him being more of a mad scientist whose laboratory goes ka-blooey in blaze of not so great glory.

So essentially the Browns changed the color of their helmets by adding a smidgen more magenta and a little yes yellow on the CYMK/RGB scale? Nice job guys.

OSU's helmet is perfect as it is so it never needs changing. The helmet stickers are required non-negotiable items. They stop that tradition I agree with DJ, the rivers, lakes and oceans will run with blood like during The Ten Commandments. They change much more Woody will come down as the Angel of Death to kill first borns. Not a good thing.

Comment 24 Feb 2015

Virginia Tech's defense didn't impress me because they weren't that good. We just couldn't execute.

I was impressed with how hard Minnesota plays. Considering how far down on the food chain they are recruiting wise they have to play with that kind of intensity to even compete.

Same thing for Navy. Talent wise they are light years behind OSU but because they execute their game plan so well they can most times even the playing field. That military discipline serves them well for damned sure because that Navy game was no walk in the park.

Comment 24 Feb 2015

How does a thread start out discussing beer then devolves into a Harbaugh thread? That's just wrong.

Most TTUN fans I know believe without a doubt Harbaugh will win in AA this November and that by the 2016 season they will be in line for the playoffs. Even with OSU having a clear advantage in talent, experience and coaching they think Jimmy's enthusiasm and the rekindled home crowd and new zone-read offense from the 49ers and DJ Durkin playing SEC defense will cancel out everything OSU will have going for it now and into the foreseeable future. They truly believe Urban is going to start getting burned out right about now and run for the hills when he realizes he cannot compete with the monster that is Jimmy Harbaugh. My response? A genuine and heart-felt, LOL.

Comment 24 Feb 2015

Urban has final veto power on any play call. He trusted Herman well enough to make the right call. Will that happen with Warinner? I hope so. What stressed Urban out at Florida were his assistants not being up to par to what he wants.

I work in downtown Tampa in a 40-story building across the street from the Tampa cruise terminal where their boat comes in and the fog is so thick right now you can't see more than half a block in front of you in any direction. Coast Guard isn't letting anyone into the port. Been here 8 years and never seen fog this bad here before.
